San Diego – More fights may follow after a California woman won her case in traffic court over a citation she was issued for wearing Google Glass while driving. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Cecilia Abadie, who is believed to be the first person cited for wearing the computer-in-eyeglass device, was found not guilty last week by San Diego County Traffic Court Commissioner John Blair who cited a lack of evidence proving her device was in operation while she was driving.
Legal experts say that a number of court battles may follow Abadie’s case win in a time where some say there is a gap between current laws and changing technology. Vivek Wadhwa, a fellow at Stanford Law School, is stated in the report to note that although a legal precedent was not set by the ruling of the lower court, similar challenges are likely to be brought forth. Wadhwa is quoted as stating, “The fun is just starting.”
Google is quoted as releasing the statement about its device after the ruling, “Glass is built to connect you more with the world around you, not distract you from it… Explorers should always use Glass responsibly and put their safety and the safety of others first.”
